I have just purchased and downloaded FA. I have watch3ed several webinars and tutorial about FA. It appears to be a 2009 version with no updates since then.
When trying to use FA I have run into several things I would like to do but so far have not found out how to do them. I imported my database from RM7.
1. When mapping events in a persons life I am looking for a way to refine the paths between events. I have a person going from New Hampshire to Michigan. This results in a straight line right across lake Erie. Not the way it happened. I have done additional research from history and letters that I have and his route was to Albany, followed the Erie canal through the major cities in New York to Buffalo. Then by wagon road to Toledo where he picked up the train to get him to Bertrand Michigan in south western Michigan.
Can I create intermediate steps in this to reflect the actual path? I could create a new fact type in RM7 to show these way points and then exclude that fact type in other reports.
2. Can I add arrows to the path between points to show the direction of travel?
3. Sometimes when I move across a zoomed image I suddenly lose the paths that are between sites. I don't think I did anything wrong but any suggestion would be appreciated.
(I am using Windows 7 64 bit with 12 gig of memory and plenty of hard disk space.)
4. Since it has not been updated in almost a decade is this product going to be supported in the future?
